Insecurity Persists In Nigeria Because We Have A Weak President – Senator Shehu Sani

Former Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sani, on Saturday said insecurity has persisted in Nigeria because President Muhammadu Buhari is either too shy or weak to take action on his subordinates.

The former Senator said when he appeared as a guest speaker on Daily Trust’s Twitter Spaces themed “Insecurity and 2023 General Elections” that “people in the position of leadership are failing and they will keep on failing because we have a president who is too weak to take actions on his subordinates.

“If you preside over as a security man, military personnel or intelligence, or you preside over the local government or state and attacks are happening continuously in your place and nothing is being achieved, it is the responsibility of the president to remove such kind of persons and bring new persons.

“Security issues sometimes need things like this. There have been continuous allegations that this terrorism and banditry is being sustained because of the complicit of or collaboration with security agencies.”

Shehu Sani added that an action has never been taken in Nigeria on people who have apparently failed, urging the President to be fully in charge of his office.

According to Sani, “you don’t just sit down because you appoint somebody and then things are good. We have seen how how prison breaks happened.

“Continuously in the last few years, you kept extending the tenure of the Controller General of the Nigerian prison service. You kept extending tenure of civil defence chiefs, immigration chiefs. No result is being achieved. A president must be decisive in taking actions as far as penalising those with responsibilities.”
